Margiani Levan

Levan Margiani (b.1965), a miniaturist and painter, graduated from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 1989. His teachers were Otar Japaridze and Shota Kuprashvili. Since 1994, he has held nearly twenty solo exhibitions, including the exhibitions at “Cour des Saint-Peres-16” exhibition space in Paris; at the Lounge of the General Commissioner at EXPO 2000, Hannover, Germany; and his joint exhibition with Merab Abramishvili at the Exhibition Hall of the Hilton Hotel in Nicosia, Cyprus (2001). Levan Margiani, like Merab Abramishvili, employs church mural and icon painting techniques in his work. His works, which mostly depict New Testament canonical motifs, are painted in tempera on levkas ground and framed in silver or tinted copper frames made by the artist himself. The artist’s works are preserved in the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts as well as private collections.
